UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 (32oz bottle) Big bottle for a big occasion - I am now a common-law uncle! Wow, the sense of commitment now strikes me. Pours a huge, frothy, white head and a clear gold body. Nose of grassy pastures, stagnant insoles. Easy drink'n. Slightly hoppy flavour. Watery to the finish. Enough to keep to straight on the road. Responsibility!

Big industrial janitorial strength cleaner looking bottle - at least it’s brown! The pour is translucent with a thin, soapy white head. Aroma is not skunky, not much there at all, a faint trace of wet paper bagness. Flavor is pretty much nonexistent as well, goes down very smooth on this hot October day working in the yard actually - for that I am grateful. Finish is just a bit metallic, but overall, a notch above the other offerings from this South American behemoth.

Generously shared by TheBeerCellar2: Pours a very pale white wine color with a thin ring of white head. Mild corn and grape aroma. Fizzy, watery body has a very mild sweetness and a thin, semi-dry finish. No off-flavors, but hardly anything here to taste. I guess this is one more country I have tried.

Bottle. Big bottle. Pale gold color with a three finger head. Head holds up well. Laces abundantly. Rather grainy aroma backed by some noble hop. Rather thin bodied with mild, frothy carbonation. Flavor is beer. There’s pale malt. There’s hop. It’s a bit sweet. It’s wholly inoffensive. It’s not crisp; it is clean. I think it’s brewed for the hotter climes. If I was eating food in El Salvador, I would use this like water. I actually think I am enjoying this one. It is so innocuous. There’s not a bad flavor in it. Would I take it to a desert island? No.

Well then...by the looks of the bottle, this is going to be just wonderful... Ah. Dumping out the contents of my 946ml bottle gave way to a clear pale yellow gold brew with some white head that survives as a skim but leaves a small ammount of spotty lacing. The smell isn’t that bad with it mostly being grassy, a bit malty and maybe maybe some chemicals (not convinced). The taste is pretty plain and totally inoffensive - watery, grassy and a touch of hops...not a bad mix, really. Thin bodied, light mouthfeel, fairly carbonated and foamy and the only aftertaste is a bit of crummy hops. Could be worse.

Hay and corn aroma. Clear yellow, thick white head, good lacing. Creamy mouthfeel. Relatively flavorless aside from a bit of corn. A fairly decent offering from south of the border.

bottle, yellow color with minimal nose, flavor is a little hoppy and not too bad

from a bottle at a mexican / el salvadorian restaurant. Not expecting to much from this type of beer, but it is not horrible. No offensive aromas or flavors, just a bland watery lager, and although blandness is uninteresting, it was good to wash down my food with and was not a disappointment. Beats the hell out of modelo, dos xx green label, and some other south american beers. Not a bad choice if you’re out eating.

Yellow pour frothy white head. Smells of metal and buttery yeast. Tastes of grapes, malt. Pleasant creamy medium palate.
